On Saturday December 1, Saint-Etienne-de-Chigny’s Christmas market will be coming to the Château de Beauvois! The 15th-century building will welcome the 6th edition of this sociable, creative and festive event. With handmade arts and crafts, gift ideas and unique creations, this Christmas market is full of surprises.
The Château de Beauvois is known for its legendary hospitality: guests of all ages can enjoy a cup of hot chocolate or a glass of mulled wine before making their way round the market stalls. This year’s edition pays tribute to handcrafted and handmade items. Painters, jewelers, winemakers, florists, beekeepers will all be showing off the results of their expert knowledge and will be delighted to share a few tricks of the trade with visitors. Fans of honey will love the delicately flavored gingerbread version, a natural sweetener which is ideal for baking Christmas treats. Don’t forget to stock up on saffron and the local specialty of poires tapées (dried pears): perfect for use in the region’s 13 traditional desserts. You won’t want to miss the stalls selling jewelry and fabric purses: you’ll be the belle of the ball this holiday season. Invest in a few bottles of local wine; your festive menu will soon take shape.
The Christmas market is perfect for a family day-out or a relaxing afternoon and is ideal for anyone looking for stocking fillers, with endless original gift ideas to put under the tree. A meal for two at Le Louis XIII, the Château de Beauvois’ gourmet restaurant, is an ideal present for any foodie; take part in the free competition and you could be the lucky winner, chosen at random at the end of the afternoon! Experience the thrill of Chef Régis Guilpain’s cooking with a set lunch menu at the Château for just €29.
